Winnie the Pooh and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Eeyore and Piglet set off on an adventure to capture a Heffalump that they believe is monstrous and has stepped out of the neighboring forest and into their 100 Acre Wood. Roo ventures into the forest and learns that the Heffalumps are not monsters at all. With the voices of Brenda Blethyn, Jim Cummings, Ken Sansom, David Ogden Stiers and Jimmy Bennett. Directed by Frank Nissen. [1:08]

SEX/NUDITY 0 - None.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Roo looks into a dark forest, he hops through a fence, and he falls over a ledge and catches onto a rope before hitting the ground.
 We hear noises coming from the brush and see something following one of the 100 Acre Wood characters. Roo is frightened by noises coming from the tall grass around him, he comes to a large door, opens it, walks through it, something taps him on the head, he sees a Heffalump, lassoes it and pronounces him "captured." A lassoed Heffalump is frightened, he pulls back, falls over a ledge, Roo holds onto him and is tossed over the ledge and onto a pile of fallen tree trunks; he slips and falls deeper and cannot get out. A Heffalump lifts large fallen tree trunks and tosses them aside, then sucks Roo up onto her trunk and lifts him out of a pit of fallen tree trunks.
 The friends lay traps for a Heffalump that they fear is invading the 100 Acre Wood; A Heffalump is frightened when the friends charge toward him with sticks, he runs away, and Roo follows him and finds him caught in a trap. Tigger ends up getting caught in a couple of the traps (he is smacked by a sack of some sort), Kanga trips a trap and ropes fall on her, and Rabbit falls into a trap (a hole in the ground that's camouflaged by leaves). Rabbit is caught in ropes and hangs upside down from a tree.
 The 100 Acre Wood friends are frightened several times by a noise they hear in the distance, and they hide in a fallen tree trunk when they hear loud trumpeting coming from a dark forest. The friends find a house ransacked with overturned honey pots and a torn up garden and they become afraid of what may have caused this mayhem. A full-grown Heffalump approaches the friends and they are very scared. The friends talk about Heffalumps and describe them as having sharp teeth, spikes on their tails, three heads and horns. The friends find large foot prints and are afraid of what may have made them. Pooh talks about a "stranger" coming and scaring him and his friends.
 A Heffalump picks Roo up by the tail. Pooh falls out of bed headfirst and lands in a pot of honey. Piglet runs out of his house with a sleeping mask on and runs into a sheet hanging from the laundry line. Tigger bounces up, crashes into a tree, and then lands on Rabbit. Tigger bounces out of bed, hits the ceiling and crashes into a portrait (we see him with the frame around his neck).
 Roo spits a watermelon seed at a Heffalump, the Heffalump fills his trunk and blows rapid-fire seeds at Roo, and they throw and shoot vegetables at each other and tear up a vegetable patch in the process.
 A Heffalump is very sad when he realizes that he is lost and may not be able to get back to his mother. One character says, "The sky has fallen."

PROFANITY 0 - None. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Friendship, fearing the unknown, family, growing up, adventure, disappointment, forgiveness, dreaming, distortion of reality.

MESSAGE - We should not be afraid of what we do not know.

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
